The Feminisation of God
Most of the images we have of Jesus in our minds are of someone feminine and weak. To call this Jesus homosexual would be an insult to homosexuals. Few of them are as weak and as feminine as the Jesus we have in our minds. Looking at most of the pictures of Jesus on the internet, he is depicted as a young girl with glowing hair and shining eyes, with long hair and a pretty dress. Except for the beard, the only masculine feature of this complete trans kid. But that's an insult to young girls or to trans kids. Even they're not as spineless as Jesus. The Jesus of our minds can be taken advantage of by other people very easily. She is unable to offer any resistance. She is an immature child, unable to cope with anything. I remember a woman in the university library who was feeling suicidal. I introduced myself as a Christian, could I help? Believing in God was no good. You had to face up to problems, not just say, 'There is a God, it will be all right.'
David Murrow, in his book, "Why Men Hate Going to Church," writes about velvet coffin Christianity. People come to a church because it is nice, the people are nice, the pastor is nice. Of course, the macho men with tattoos and motorbikes that David Murrow seeks to attract to his church won't stomach this. But it is because people believe in a nice God. A God with no Hell. A God with no backbone. So they create a nice church. Jesus was a wimp, so Christianity is for children, old people and wimps.
Youthwork can feminise God. The most common form of evangelism that the church still practices is working with children, mostly from church families. This leads to childish images of God. "Gentle Jesus meek and mild, look upon this little child," or "As I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep." No wonder that so many people give up being Christians when they get to adulthood.
What was the real Jesus like? The Jesus who overturned the tables in the temple wasn't meek or mild. He had a well balanced personality. A man has an X and a Y chromosone. He is masculine and feminine. Man was created in the image of God. Woman is gentler than man and has two X chromosones. If God created man in his own image, God is X and Y, possessing an ideal balance of masculine and feminine character traits.
